because nothing says independence like photos of kids in red, white, and blue

04 July 2014

Bash is gonna smile like it's your birthday, America.

No, really!
 
I wanted to recreate this picture from the 4th two years ago ...
(it was such a crazy hot summer - killed the grass dead)

And the kids really made that dream come alive for me.

Thanks a bunch, angel children.

The kids are napping and we're going to order pizza for a picnic party dinner at the park. Say that fives times fast. Or don't. Just have a happy 4th of July instead!

smiley and patriotic emojis abounding.

  4. I literally laughed out loud (and may or may not have sprayed the computer screen :/). Thank you for putting a smile on my face as I sit here at work pouting because I can't be at the parade with my little ones. Seriously.... this post is gold :)

  10. That's such a great photo of all of them. And seeing them so little from a couple years ago, sorta makes me want to cry. Could everyone please stop growing up?? Happy 4th from Canada!

  11. Love how Theo has his hand on Phoebe just to make sure she's close by. The look on Bash's face in that third picture is the best! That's what Jerry look like when we get a bill from Georgetown Hospital. Seriously.

    The.same.face.

    Happy 4th my friend. Enjoy that picnic party n the park.

  13. How funny, we did the same thing. Pizza tater tots and chicken tenders at the park. Thankfully no one was there and it wasn't photographed/documented because G probably has pinkeye and looks like a gross alien face. Happy fourth, though!

  14. Adorable! We're in New England, so we had a tropical storm (depression? rain event? it just rained all day) and a showing of "Tangled" for our Fourth of July. What's more American than dire threats from the weatherman and Disney movies? :)

  16. I know this picture was almost a year ago but I love that little denim romper the baby is wearing! By chance do you remember where you bought it from?
